Great to get such positive feedback from Polly & Dave for this wedding on Saturday. :-) #MyClientsAreTheBest

This Easter weekend (2015) Jonathon made the whole photo experience at our wedding so much fun. He was snappy and fast and everyone thought he maneuvered us about in a friendly and efficient way. We had family portraits, action shots from the dancefloor, twilight shots, sparkler photos and a projector screen show so the evening guests could see photos from the day. He couldn't have done more for us if he tried. I cant wait to see the photos. I should also mention that we had a pre wedding shoot so we could all get used to each other - Jonathons ability to work wonders with light are outstanding - one photo he took of us was in the dark, I literally couldnt see him however the results were amazing, we were clear and focused with fantastic scenery and lights in the background. Outstanding photographer. Thank you Jonathon.

Everyone has different priorities; they are reflected in what we spend our money on. There are many ways to save on a wedding day and people should not feel guilty in investing in what's important to them. Annabel from Love My Dress Blog has written a good repost to an article saying that a £60 wedding dress, naff disco and iffy food was good enough for most people.

"Why is a wedding photographer not worth £2-£3k and more when they have to spend a whole day artistically and skillfully capturing precious moments that will create invaluable treasured memories for a lifetime?  Why shouldn't a bride and groom spend money on all these things without being accused of being vulgar and competitive and overlooking what's really important?"

People should feel free to prioritise as they see best. I would personally hope it included one of the few things to take away from the day, beautifully crafted wedding memories/images.

Excellent article. The time is now. #LovedAsYouAre
Listen. I hear you. You're a few pounds heavier than you like (or a 100lbs heavier than you like). I completely understand how you feel. I get that same blah feeling about myself when I think about...

A few photos from the Solar Eclipse over Gloucestershire

Solar eclipses do not occur very often over the UK, so I wanted to capture the moment from somewhere with a great view over the Gloucestershire landscape. The sun rises in the east, so to capture great images I needed a hill facing the west....

I'm a visual person (funny that. ;-)  and love viewing & presenting data in different ways. This infographic shows a calendar of possible portraits locations with different foliage & seasons throughout the year. Whatever the light conditions, whatever the time of year there's a creative, colourful & natural portrait possibility just waiting for you. What's your favourite season?

Excellent post by Annabel. We all have different priories on how we spend our money and your wedding day should reflect yours, not what other's expectations are.

We used Parsons for our bathroom on the recommendation of a friend and have been very happy with the price, fitting and final product. We have since recommended them to several friends, some of whom have had their entire houses carpeted by Parsons and they have been delighted as well. Great company to work with.

I'm very pleased with the content that Kathryn from Less Ordinary Content created for PhotoGlow. One example is how she wrote an advert for a parenting magazine and then liaised with the editor to also write an editorial article which really boosted our exposure. This combined coverage approach maximised our advertising spend and conveyed what we do extremely well. We even got the front page photo, which was a great bonus. I've always been impressed with Kathyn’s thorough approach & with the copy she write and wholeheartedly recommend her agencies’ services.
